Shulman shut down outside Willets Point hearing

"At a NYC politician rally, Monserrate and protesters stopped Claire Shulman's rally by protesting against Claire & friends.

Claire yelled at Willets Point land owners, "Shame on you, shame on you! This plan will never die!"

Willets Point people yelled back, "Shame on you, shame on you for neglecting us for 30 years!"

The police then stopped Shulman's press conference so a riot did not ensue!" - anonymous

Shame on you all! Shame, shame, shame!

Shame on you for thinking you have the right to keep your own land. Shame on you for thinking you have the right to earn a living here. Shame on you for not stepping aside and sacrificing for your great party leaders such as myself. Shame on you for trying to exposing the city's neglect, and making me look bad.

What the hell do you think this is, America? Now do what you're told and shut up. Shame, shame, shame on you!!!

"Claire yelled at Willets Point land owners, "Shame on you, shame on you! This plan will never die!""

What plan?

No written details. No developer identified. Star chamber secrecy.

Screw her!

Alan said...

I do De-Claire...does anyone know how much Granny Shulman took from us taxpayers so far for trying to stuff this project down our throats?

NickyB said...

Claire Shulman is NOW the laughing stock of all Queens. Yelling at her former constituents only means she has a more than egalitarian agenda. I can't believe that some reporter doesn't 'follow the money' and discover what Claires real agenda and goal is.

Anonymous said...

Can't Claire Shulman pick on people at her own level? No one stoops that low, so she's got nothing better to do. The RKO Keith's of Flushing is not fully landmarked today due to her political baggage. I can name loads of other stunts she pulled.

Willets 1 said...

Helen Marshall: You should get more information and do your job correctly and NOT MAKE IDIOTIC statements as you did today. I am an owner at Willets Point. I have had but ONE conversation with EDC and they handed me a booklet from commercial real estate companies. Is THAT earnest conversation and attempt to relocate my business. ? I think not. And you should be ashamed of yourself for spewing misinformation to the public.

anyone who needed a day worker today was out of luck..

Feinstein and Hiram cleaned then all out and drove them into Manhattan to shout down an old lady..

shame shame shame.

most of the protesters were from ACORN btw.. which im sure you people love due to their support of affordable housing.

Steve G. said...

No matter whose side you are on in this issue, this shows extraordinarily poor judgment on behalf of Claire, Helen and Toby. How did they think this was going to look on the news?

Only in Queens do you have elected officials who are of such low intelligence and lacking moral character and a sense of duty as to yell 'shame on you' at their constituents for practicing their right to protest.

Even if the protesters had been disrespectful (which it does not appear they were), this is conduct unbecoming of any former or current public servant.

Claire, Helen and Toby, you are three unprofessional, morally bankrupt hacks who bring shame on the entire borough of Queens.

obviously you weren't there//

clair and the rest of the bridge club were yelling SHAME ON YOU to HIRAM.. for trucking in 30 or so day workers and teaching them three sentences of English in order to disrupt their press conference

Anonymous said...

once bloomberg comes to his senses and jacks up the affordable housing component of Willets to close to 50% the Acorn people will jump sides and the 29 or so council people who acorn got to sign Hiram and Feinstein's letter will back the plan 100%

Why would they be upset at that? Illegals are part of the vibrant, diverse mosaic of Queens and are welcomed here under the sanctuary city policy.

So then how did NY1 manage to interview the owner of Bono Sawdust? Wait let me guess...it's a camera trick! Who's seeing helicopters now?

Shulman is a backstabbing pig who puts on kneepads for the Mayor.

Only words? It should have been bricks !!
Out with all this local ZOG who only give a shit about BIG $$$ and power trips.

Allowing and area to become "blighted" so you can steal it is criminal intent.
The Mayor and his posse of bastards the be all belong in jail.

We need Willets Point and its workers.
Is Mayor midget going to buy or rent us new cars every 4 years ?

Not everbody lives in Manhatten or earns over $300,000 a year in todays crap US Dollars !!!

Anonymous said...

that NY1 video with Bono was shot outside the planning commission meeting NOT at the press conference which was down the street in Washington Square Park..

god you people just make assumptions and comments and you werent even there..

funny thing is .. Bono's name was called to speak his peace in the CPC Meeting and he didnt step up.. must've been down in little italy eating some pork chops after his big three seconds in front of the cameras.

Anonymous said...

How is it that the Parkside shills seem to 'know' everyone involved? Why do people like Shulman care so much about a tiny area like WP?

Developing this area as proposed backs up the Whitestone Expressway, which backs up the Whitestone Bridge, which backs up the Throgs Neck Bridge, and backs up the Van Wyck, which in turn backs up the Long Island Expressway, both ways, which in turn backs up the Grand Central Parkway. And it gets much better during Met games (from which so many Queens citizens will be priced out of because of the taxpayer subsidized new stadium) and the US Open (where less than 3% of Queens citizens actually play tennis).

Please put a cell tower on the top of my fucking head so I can 'help Queens'.

Just what Queens needs.

Disclose your interest. Or were you just there bc you didnt like the WP eyesore when skyward in your copter? No joking though, why were YOU at the rally?

Huh, maggot property sniffer?

"Disclose your interest"

just like you said.. WP is an eyesore and Im sick of looking at it..

its an embarrassment and a blight on the City, state and to our country.

when looking at it from my Maybach limo or S-76 Sikorsky I get physically ill. plus.. if they move to Flushing airport and officially shut that down i can get a landing slot at LGA for my G5.. :-p

True!

Shulman lobbied on behalf of her boss Manes to abridge the RKO Keith's original full landmark designation at the old Board of Estimate.

She's a treacherous cur!

And now it's out in the open for all to finally see!

Shame on you!
Shame on you! Shame on you

To the 'last' anonymous: At least you KNOW who Jake is. No one knows who YOU are. He runs a family business and runs it well. I will wager ALL that I have, thay you have never owned a thing but the very computer that you write your assinine drivel from. As far as the 'racist' remark, what Claire and Co. are doing is so patently racist and you can't see it. Please, please give some thought to the folks in the surrounding neighborhoods that use WP every day. But youre a typical Kool Aid Democrat that believes everything Claire Putin, er Shulman proffers. Why not do a little research before you castigate the hard working people who have contributed to the No. Queens economy for 60 years!

Don't know what "debate" level is being lowered; this post was about Claire getting shouted down outside a hearing. That's an indisputable fact. There's plenty of news coverage of the event.

I think I will leave you to debate yourself, among other things.

Anonymous said...

so flushing man .. whats the truth??

there are

20 landowner/business people
54 landowners who rent their land
250 businesses who rent land

so far they've done 4 deals with landowners and hired a firm to deal directly with the 250 tenant businesses to both find a spot for either all of them at once or individually if they desire.

they've been at this for about a year.. they say they've done two mailings to the legal owners and have reached out to all of them.

they've had constructive meeting with the majority of the landowners and will announce more land deals over the next two months.

what's the lie??

"this coming from a man who makes saw dust..what rocket science school do you need to go to for that?"

His family recognized a need for a product and made it into a successful business that's lasted generations. That's the definition of sucess.

I don't know Jake but I bet when he was 23 he was probably working hard learning the business, not taking fluff political patronage jobs and blogging about how to take land away from its owners because they want something that looks nicer.

Talk about a zero...

She started her reign as Queens Borough President “backing off” from Thomas Huang and the RKO Theater issue. She never supported the community in preserving the Theater. She ignored preservationists, told them to back off as well. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON YOU!!!
